Are you kidding!!! This is huge. If McCain picks up PA can he still win if he losses NM, CO and/or NV?

If McCain takes PA, Obama has NO chance.

Is it possible for Obama to have a post-convention DIP?

I’ve been telling people for MONTHS Fauxbama will NOT take PA.

The polls that have been showing him up have been VASTLY oversampling the Philly area.

I’d like to see the internals of this one.

Here’s several million reasons why this poll shows McCain with a lead in Pennsylvania:

Hillary Clinton Supporters For John McCain:

http://www.hcsfjm.com

Party Unity My A$$ PAC/People United Means Action PAC:

http://blog.pumapac.org

Democrats Against Obama/Nobama ever!

http://democrats-against-obama.org

Just Say No Deal:

http://justsaynodeal.com

Take a look around these sites for a half hour or 45 minutes....(there are hundreds more linked to these, just look for links)

Of course, if it was the Palestinian Authority (PA), Senator Obama would be ahead 100-0!!

My love for country can NOT TOLERATE McCain!

With McCain as our nominee, who needs enemies?

When the GOP or McCain ask for money to support McCain, print and send them one of these.

"But we STILL have people here
trying to convince us
it would be better than voting for Obama"

Vote Bob Barr.

Checked out the RCP electoral map. If McCain gains PA he wins even if he loses NM,CO and NV. WOW!!! This a shocker. You know the D machine in Philadelphia is cranking up for a huge voter fraud operation.

I hope hOlyman loses, but if McLame wins big, he will take that as enthusiasm and use it to advocate his goofy idea of naturalizing all the illegals and guaranteeing another flood.

Usually on election day, Philly is “vastly oversampled” on election day.

It looks like the poll is ONLY of PA District 10, not the whole state.

The mentioned that this district is mainly white (you know, bitter, clinging to guns, antipathy to people not like them, etc...) and more rural.

It would have helped if you had posted the actual numbers:
McCain - 50%
Obama - 41%
(among likely voters)

This is VERY good news for Mr. McCain. I don’t think he can win this one without taking Pennsylvania, and the same goes for Obama: if he can’t win PA, he can’t win.

Many folks here might wrongly call PA a “blue state”, but it trends toward the purple. Of course, the major population centers of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are ‘rat strongholds, with sizable minority populations. But Pennsylvania is a big state with a “white middle”, so to speak. These are precisely the kind of folks Obama dissed in the primaries. And they’re going to pay him back for it...

- John

Some numbers clarification.

270 EVs req’d to win. Bush win in 2004 with 286. So 16 can be lost from 2004 and still win. 17 lost makes the count 269-269 and the House would choose Obama.

As of now (red)New Mexico (5) and (red)Iowa (7) appear lost. This leaves a cushion of 4.

(red)Colorado is 9 and is shaky. (red)Nevada is 5 and is shaky (though Romney probably can secure it).

(blue)Pennsylvania is 21 electoral votes. (blue)Michigan is 17. Those are the two blue states talked of as possibly grabbable. Either would more than counter loss of (red)Virginia (13).

Unlike previous years, we need to see some polling in Montana, the Dakotas and the odd districts of Maine and Nebraska, just to be sure they are secure.

Beyond this, as a poster above said, if McCain wins Pennsylvania it will mean far reaching things for other states and election night will be an early one.

If Obama loses PA, it’s doubtful he wins CO, NM, or NV.

Bush actually won this district 60-40 over John Kerry.

This is not good news. Wish it was, but it isn't.

mccain has had a wonderfully month. This seems to coincide with his new campaign manager. If he plays his cards right, he may win 49 states.
If he plays them wrong, he may lose 40.
The outcome of any war(campaign) is not predetermined.

I guess people in PA are fearful and are 'sticking to their guns and bibles'. /s

I believe that a few other states are in play, and I think it might be a long night for Dems. (I think Rs might pick a few house seats.)

Voting for Barr might make you feel good - until you see your TAXES RAISED by PRESIDENT HUSSIEN OBAMA, a nuclear bomb go off in Kansas City, and a Marxist judge on the SCOTUS.

You Anti-mcCain FReepers are sick!!
